Some sympathy for "the dog", as they are known locally, as they have suffered from being populated, even more than we all are, by the scourge of community sport in GB..... The millennial.
This generation will prove the downfall of this and other team sports as commitment levels are tested on a rolling monthly basis. In their wake will be the shell of rugby clubs like Panthers, now saddled with a £1500 fine plus suspension clauses added to automatic re-election and repayment of their 4 figure NCL travel allowance..
However, the suits at the RFL will no doubt put it down to "one of those things".
Surely these people must be related to the orchestra on the Titanic.... "Just play on, chaps"..
